Almonds and Chocolate – Junk Food Post #23

Dove ChocolateHappy Friday!  It’s kind of hard to believe there’s only one more Friday left after this one in unResolution month, isn’t it?!  Seems like just yesterday we were eating cheesy gnocchi and deep fried vegan sushi.  Well with time short, let’s not waste a minute more getting to our next dessert.

Almonds and Chocolate

So when Kathy first suggested this dessert, I knew there was something delicious in its simplicity.  As far as chef’s desserts go, there’s nothing simpler than adding chocolate and almonds and chowing down.  In fact, as your making this recipe, I suggest you take a square of chocolate, add a couple almonds and insert into mouth.  Mmm…

However, I wanted to do something a bit more unResolution-y and so I got to thinking about ways to deliver the almonds and the chocolate.  My first thought was that I wanted to add a little marshmallow to my chocolate and almonds and make smores.  But that’s too simple, so then I started thinking crepes instead of graham crackers.

So in order to most deliciously snack on your chocolate and almonds, let’s make

Chocolate, Almond, and Marshmallow Crepes

Okay, so I’m not about to create my own crepe batter recipe.  Instead, I’ll use Alton Brown’s which can be found on the Food Network site.

You will need:

For the crepes:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup, milk
  • 1/2 cup, water
  • 1 cup, flour
  • 3 tablespoons, melted butter
  • butter for the pan

For the filling

  • 12 squares of Dove Dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1 cup of marshmallow fluff

Follow Alton’s steps for making the crepes.

Using a sharp knife, cut the chocolate into smaller pieces.  Just a rough chop should suffice.

If you want, put the almonds in the bag and break into pieces with a rolling pin, meat mallet or your crazy kung fu skills (that was a joke.  Don’t sue me if you break your hands…)

Next, put three good tablespoons of marshmallow fluff on the crepe, then the chocolate, and finally the almonds.

Eat with a fork because there’s a good chance the chocolate or the almonds will be pointy and pierce the wall of the crepe if handled too roughly.  Then all that’s left is to enjoy!

  1. I haven’t had crepes in forever, and if I remember, the last were savory. The idea of a chocolate-filled, marshmallow & nut crepe is beyond anything I can imagine. Like a giant candy bar or something. Totally decadent!

  2. And that’s what unResolution month is all about! I was kind of proud of it, sort of like an adult smore. Not that there’s anything wrong with the non-adult smore. 🙂

  3. This looks like something I need right now. So I shall leave my office, stop at the HyVee and pick up the ingredients – yum! Thanks Chris!
